Freshman Entrance Requirements

The major in computer and information sciences requires 48 semester hours of CIS courses at the 200 level or above with a grade point average of at least 2.2 and a grade of C or better in each of the required computer and information sciences courses. If a student receives a grade D or F in any CIS course, then the student will only be allowed one chance to retake that course and pass it (grade C or better). CIS courses taken at another institution for which a grade of D was received may not be counted toward the CIS major or the CIS minor.
